Inspiring

I am a solicitor and partner at a law firm in the North West. These interviews are always inspiring and insightful and I wish I had been given some of the tips from these women before I started my career. I really admire and appreciate what you’re doing with this podcast for our current and future female solicitors/barristers.

Well worth a listen for anyone with an interest in the law, how it operates and how women can play a greater part in that.
